Located in the mountainous Alt Penedes wine region, 1-hour west of Barcelona sits this beautiful four-bedroom country property. Originally a 17th century barn where roof tiles were made, the property has been lovingly converted into a gem of a home. The surrounding greenery and peace and tranquillity make this the ideal place to relax and recharge.

Inside, the decor is light and airy. Slate flooring, stacked stone walls and natural finishes sweep through the open-plan living area creating a soothing atmosphere. A huge open fireplace overlooks an inviting dining table that seats eight people, while the well-equipped kitchen is kitted out with a wood-fire oven and every utensil you could possibly need (the owner, after all, is a professional chef). Stairs lead from the living area down to a cosy chill-out room where you can enjoy a siesta after a leisurely lunch while a spiral staircase sweeps up to the first floor.

There's a cosy lounge on the first floor where you can relax on the sofas with a film or simply gaze out the window at the sweeping views. Leading off from here are the four bedrooms, all featuring whitewashed walls, wood-beamed ceilings, double beds and glorious views of the garden. There are also two separate bathrooms featuring organic toiletries and luxury bathrobes for extra comfort.

Back on the ground level, there is plenty more to discover outside. The property prides itself on being eco-friendly and has a well-developed kitchen garden and an enclosure for the resident chickens. But the real highlight is the natural swimming pool surrounded by vineyards, sprawling mountains and ancient oak, olive and pine trees. Start the day with a dip in the crystal-clear waters or enjoy a quiet coffee while watching the sunrise. You'll find the silence here is magical, punctuated only by the croak of a frog or the buzz of a dragonfly. During the day, bask in the sun on a lounger or cook some locally sourced meat on the barbeque, then dine al fresco on the shady terrace. There's also a Zen garden located at the rear of the property, where you can sit by the pond and watch the goldfish swim.

The more active might want to explore the six hectares of private forest or enjoy a hike through the mountains. But at the end of the day, simply settle onto one of the comfy seating spots around the fire pit and marvel at the endless night sky. Although the property is set in a rural location, it's only a 5-minute drive to a traditional restaurant, winery, and the small town of Pontons. The Penedes region is full of activities including wine tasting, hiking, cycling, restaurants, natural waterfalls as well the local town of Vilafranca only 20 km from La Masia Forn Teuler, so you'll never be bored during your stay!

At La Masia Forn Teuler, you will be sharing your stay with the owner and residential chef, Sophie! Sophie is from Australia and moved to Barcelona to open its first Australian eatery. Since leaving Barcelona and moving inwards into the Catalan countryside, she has been running La Masia Forn Teuler as a way to show guests the wonders of Spanish and Catalan cuisine, set against the backdrop of the gorgeous Alt Penedes region. Sophie offers various experiences at this villa, including cooking classes, dining with the chef, or wine tastings. Check out our Extras tab for more details!

Loading map

La Masia Forn Teuler is set in the mountainous region of Penedes in northeast Spain. Famous for producing some of the country's best wines, Penedes is home to endless vineyards and lush forests. The area is quiet and surrounded by natural beauty, making it perfect for hiking, walking, and horse riding.

For a day out, head to Vilafranca del Penedes. It's a 20-minute drive away and known internationally for its wines and cavas. The old town is a pretty place for a stroll with its historic buildings, colourful houses, thirteenth-century church and seventeenth-century chapel. Be sure to also stop at the Museum of Wine Cultures of Catalonia (VINSEUM) and learn everything there is to know about the history of wine. Afterwards, head to the Museum's Tavern, where you can sample a glass or two of the town's famous produce.

Although the Penedes area is wonderfully tranquil if you prefer to spend the day by the sea, it's a 40-minute drive from the property to the coast. Popular beaches can be found in the glittering seaside town of Sitges. The beaches here are long and sandy and fringed by shady palms and excellent facilities. After a peaceful swim, browse the boutique stores, discover the many galleries and museums and marvel at the Modernista works of art in the Museu Cau Ferrat. Alternatively, linger over a tasty lunch at one of the excellent waterfront restaurants while watching the stylish, well-heeled crowd along the promenade. Sitges also boasts a vibrant nightlife, and come evening, the place teems with partygoers who flock to the numerous cocktail bars, nightclubs and discos.

No day trip would be complete without a visit to Spain's most cosmopolitan city, Barcelona. This vibrant city is a 1-hour drive from the property and is packed with groundbreaking art, architecture and style. Stroll along La Rambla with its buzzy bars and restaurants and admire Barcelona's cathedral. Gothic in style, it dates back to the fourteenth century and is one of the city's most magnificent structures. Be sure to also take in La Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudi's Modernista masterpiece. Other not-to-be-missed experiences include viewing Pablo's portraits in the Museu Picasso and soaking up the views from Gaudi's Park Guell.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

La Masia Forn Teuler is a tranquil place with a great deal of space both inside and outside. Although the property is not suitable for younger children, older ones who enjoy being outdoors can take advantage of the natural surroundings. They can spend the day swimming in the natural pool, hiking through the forest or exploring the mountains on horseback. When the day is drawing to a close, gather the family in the huge kitchen and spend time cooking together. Better yet, have a meal prepared by the resident chef so you can spend more time watching the sunset over the mountains.

The beaches along the coast are ideally suited to families with their soft sand and excellent facilities. The popular seaside town of Sitges is a good choice for a swim and is a 40-minute drive away. Older kids can also try their hand at watersports with water-skiing, parasailing and jet skiing on offer. Afterwards, the whole family can explore the Museu Cau Ferrat with its displays of work by Modernista artists, including Picasso.

But for a full day of activity, head to Barcelona, which is a 1-hour drive from the property. This cosmopolitan city is packed with attractions, and older kids will love the live music on La Rambla, surreal architecture, and plenty of stylish stores and arts and craft markets. Not-to-be-missed attractions include Museu Picasso and Gaudi's awe-inspiring La Sagrada Familia. There are a large number of galleries and museums dotted about the city, but kids won't want to miss visiting the Chocolate Museum. Here they can learn about the history of chocolate, view chocolate models and, of course, sample plenty of the creations. Alternatively, they can explore the cosmos at the giant, interactive science museum.

Other places of interest include the aquarium (where the more adventurous can swim with sharks) and a zoo featuring lions, elephants, giraffes and dolphin shows. But for more adrenaline-fuelled adventure, head to Barcelona's Tibidabo amusement park. It features 30 attractions, including a Ferris Wheel and a ghoulish house of horrors. Once the kids have exhausted the rides, splash in the water fountains and cool off with a cool drink from the cafe.
